The financials (revenue and net profit) are shown in graph below:
Valuation – For the last 3 years average EPS is Rs. 4.01 and the P/E is around 172x. On the upper price band of Rs 690, the EPS is negative for FY21 hence It is not possible to calculate the P/E. There are listed peers doing similar business like Page Industries which is trading P/E of 130x and other companies (like Trent Limited, Aditya Birla Fashion & Retail Limited, TCNS Clothing Company Limited) have negative EPS, hence P/E cannot be computed. However, IPO price with P/E of 172x is aggressively priced and expensive.
Recommendation – After considering all the factors we would recommend investors with high risk profile may “SUBSCRIBE” to this IPO for the possibility of listing gains. Investors with medium to long term perspective can skip this IPO as there are many more IPOs lined up in near future.
